The title of Firefox, the first book in the Mitchell Gant series, refers to a thought-controlled warplane. It is the fastest and most advanced warplane in existence with a though-controlled weapon system. The Soviet Mig-31 is powerful and could lead to victory for the Soviets, but one American pilot is determined to steal it. That pilot is Mitchell Gant, a Vietnam veteran that is still haunted by the war, who is selected by his superiors for the job and given elite training.

Wolfsbane sees a man named Richard Gardine, an ex-agent who has long been haunted by his time in the bloody cellars of the Gestapo and the double cross that happened to him when he was nearly free. The memories have haunted him and he’s tried to keep them buried, but revenge has never been far from his mind. He’ll shed his old life and search out the man who betrayed and murdered by proxy. The man’s name is Wolf and Richard is about to the bane of this wolf’s existence.
